Certified organic to USDA National Organic Program standards, Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade & Organic Pump Soaps are smooth and luxurious with no synthetic detergents or preservatives. Organic shikakai comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia concinna and has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair. We extract the organic shikakai in organic sugar and organic grape juice and combine it with our unsurpassed pure-castile liquid soap base for a rich, emollient lather and a moisturising after feel. 4-in-1 Organic Pump Soaps are good for washing hands, face, body & hair place by your sink or in the shower! To wash hair work one pump of Organic Pump Soap into wet hair until it lathers, then rub and rinse. Repeat for thicker or longer hair. After washing, follow up with a lightly acidic conditioning rinse, like Dr. Bronners Citrus Organic Hair Rinse to leave hair silky smooth! Dont have the Organic Hair Rinse? Use diluted apple cider vinegar or lemon juice!
